What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid is a government scheme that allows donations given to charity to be tax-effective. As soon as you give your permission, we can claim an extra 25% on any donations you make as well as any previous donations in the last 4 years. That means that for every £1 you donate, Epilepsy Action gets an extra 25p.

Am I eligible?

You are eligible for Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer and pay Income Tax and/or Capital Gains tax greater than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in any tax year.

Are all donations eligible?

Certain donations are not eligible for Gift Aid. If your donation falls into any of the following categories, Gift Aid cannot be claimed:

  • Donations made on behalf of someone else or a group of people
  • Donations made on behalf of a company
  • Donations to a family member or friend doing an event where the charity is contributing to the costs
  • Donations was made in return for goods, rights or services
